    Thats Awesome!! good communications scanning/electronic ops practice.
    Not if your navy is trying to scan an USN ship. In most cases when operating with other navies the USN sets an electronic condition to reduce any electronic signal that could be compromised.

    the PLAN ships have more range with their new setup, can track over 100 planes...

    when they go off shore the can monitor 300+km inside country.

    there was a series of articles about Chinese AEGIS...

    Chinese Ahoy It's A Chinese Aegis Part One
    In the future, wherever Chinese merchant ships go, that area may be taken as China's national interest frontier, and the trace of the "Chinese Aegis" class DDG may appear. Moreover, this theory gives China a more convincing rationale for building its own aircraft carriers.

    by Andrei Chang
    Hong Kong (UPI) Feb 26, 2009
    The People's Republic of China recently dispatched two navy ships -- its most advanced No. 171 "Chinese Aegis" class DDG and No. 169 "Chinese Sovremenni" class DDG -- to the waters near Somalia to engage in anti-pirate operations. As a Chinese expression goes, "Why use an ox-cleaver to kill a chicken?"

    This high-profile action represents a great step forward for the People's Liberation Army navy toward becoming a global blue-water maritime force. Its leaders seem to be following in the footsteps of Adm. Sergei Gorshkov, who commanded the Soviet navy for nearly three decades and built it into a global sea power. He said his navy would fly the flag of the Soviet Union in every corner of the five continents and four great oceans on Earth, as they all fell within the range of Soviet interests.

    On Jan. 4 the People's Liberation Army Daily published an article by someone named Huang Kunlun claiming that "Maritime trade has without any doubt become the lifeline of the Chinese economy, and the oceans are now China's critical communication and navigation channels. Using maritime forces to protect national maritime interests is an important measure for the PLA navy to safeguard the national interest of our country."

    This article put forward for the first time the concept of a "national interest frontier," implying that PLA operations should be extended to wherever China has interests. The author advocates "protecting the national interest frontier" as the call of a new era and an inevitable trend.

    This concept of a national interest frontier is, in fact, the 21st century version of the Gorshkov theory, under which the Soviet naval commander advocated the strategic use of an oceangoing navy.

    Where does China's national interest frontier lie exactly? The term itself indicates that PLA navy operations in the future will go beyond the Taiwan Strait and the traditional Chinese maritime territory. The Huang article pegged China's national interest frontier with its maritime trading activities.

    This means the PLA sees the scope of its operations in protecting the national interest as global in nature. The underlying logic is very simple: China's trading activities have become global, so dispatching naval warships to escort Chinese merchant ships is only a first stride forward for the nation's navy.

    In the future, wherever Chinese merchant ships go, that area may be taken as China's national interest frontier, and the trace of the "Chinese Aegis" class DDG may appear. Moreover, this theory gives China a more convincing rationale for building its own aircraft carriers.

    Clearly, the conventional Western analysis that ascribes a limited defense mission for the Chinese navy as far as Japan's Ryukyu Islands, Taiwan and the northern Philippines is out of date.

    China Afloat In The Indian Ocean Part Two
    A 052C DDG.

    by Andrei Chang
    Hong Kong (UPI) Mar 11, 2009
    China's Sea Lion radar can search for more than 100 targets at once and track 50 of them at the same time.

    Its search range for combat aircraft appears to be around 500 to 550 kilometers (300 to 330 miles). The design requirements for both Russian and Japanese phased array radar systems are such that even if 10 percent of the elements are lost, the radar system can continue to function.

    China has built only two 052C DDGs outfitted with this advanced radar system; its purpose is to test the effectiveness of the Sea Lion for future installation on Chinese aircraft carriers.

    This radar system on the No. 171 DDG, currently deployed in the Gulf of Aden, makes it possible for the People's Liberation Army navy to monitor most of the airspace above Yemen, Oman and the Strait of Hormuz.

    Tankers carrying crude oil from Saudi Arabia would have to go through this strait. In addition, the Fifth Fleet of the U.S. Pacific Fleet based in Bahrain, the forward headquarters of the U.S. Central Command located in Qatar, and the activities of the combat aircraft of the Saudi Arabian air force could all come under the surveillance of the Chinese Aegis radar system.

    Of course, while en route to the Indian Ocean -- past the Philippines, Vietnam, Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia and through the Strait of Malacca -- the Chinese Aegis-equipped warships can conduct surveillance, including the airspace above southern India.

    The activities of the air forces in the above countries and voice communication signals also may be monitored and intercepted. A number of these countries have territorial disputes with China on land or sea.

    Moreover, the No. 171 and No. 169 DDGs are equipped with China's best electronic intelligence acquisition and countermeasure systems, and their antenna arrays are very similar to the electronic intelligence acquisition and support systems developed by Israel. These systems can effectively detect and acquire the radar signals of the U.S. Fifth Fleet and record the data.

    Naturally, the equipment also can monitor the radar signals and frequencies of the naval warships of the countries along this route. The No. 171 DDG is equipped with the NRJ6A ESM/ESM system; according to at least one military source, this microelectronic system is imported from Israel.

    Any navy ship formation requires the support of a powerful underwater outpost force and reinforced anti-submarine capability to be able to engage in effective three-dimensional warfare. The best anti-submarine measure, of course, is using submarines to undertake anti-tracking operations.

    Consequently, the possibility cannot be excluded that new generation 093 SSN or other diesel-powered submarines may have played the role of underwater outpost during recent anti-piracy actions of the PLA navy in the Gulf of Aden.

    Behind the curtain of the anti-piracy operations is, in fact, the rivalry of the naval forces of the major powers in establishing their new "national interest frontiers."

    Agreed.

    The guys that PS missiles and bombs will never learn. Most nations aircraft that are in training or on non combat missions don't carry any weapons. Now on a real training flight they may carry dummy weapons...

    I don't know where did you get that idea from, but type 79 sniper rifle is widely used by PLA and PAP.
